UNICEF Strategic Plan Goal Area 3: Indicator Manual
UNICEF Strategic Plan (SP) Goal Area 3 Indicator Manual was developed with three overarching aims:
- Bring coherence to reporting and aggregating results by consolidating definitions and methods of calculations of the UNICEF SP outcome and output indicators.
- Equip and enable UNICEF Country Offices to better collect data and implement effective reporting of the SP outcome and output indicators.
- Document contextual and technical background information relevant to the development of the SP results framework (e.g. baseline and target-setting exercise), which may help Country Offices to better understand the SP.
The envisioned users of the Indicator Manual are UNICEF Country Offices and partners implementing child protection programmes or any programmes that contribute to Goal Area 3 of the SP; and Regional Offices and Headquarters in providing guidance in ensuring coherent data collection and aggregation of results. It is encouraged that stakeholders not only in child protection, but also in other sectors, to use this resource in strengthening programming – and eventual accountability – for protecting children from violence and exploitation in the Sustainable Development Goals.
